Seriously, who was it that drove a perfectly good ship, with unlimited electronics, in excellent weather onto a reef??? A feriner??? Nope. Probably one of them thar fancy Annapolis graduates.
How much was that ship worth.....bwahahahahaha...glad I do not pay taxes in the US anymore. I do not support stupid.
Let me make this clearer for you, as my quote was a take off on your "half witted" comment.

The Filipinos are going to be just as happy, if not happier, with the money they will get from the US over this than giving a darn about a human being having made a mistake. Everyone makes mistakes, even stupid ones.

The chip on your shoulder is quite obvious. Thanks for moving out. That was the noble thing to do.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
